Play pears’ sweetness against bitter endive or radicchio, tangy citrus such as kumquats or oranges, earthy nuts (especially walnuts), and woodsy herbs like fresh thyme or sage.
In this salad, sweet-earthy candied walnuts, bitter radicchio, juicy ripe Anjou pears, and salty capers contrast for delightful fall dish. Serve alongside any meal, and make a double batch of the sugared walnuts for gifts or sweet snacking.
